Indiana University students with an interest in law are invited to participate in Law Day, hosted by IU Health Professions and Prelaw Center (HPPLC) to provide a chance to learn about law school and meet with representatives from law school programs. Law Day is free and open to the public from 9 a.m.–3 p.m. on September 27 at the Indiana Memorial Union.
Law Day features admissions representatives from over 90 American Bar Association-accredited schools.
“Anyone with an interest in law can benefit from Law Day,” IU Prelaw Advisor Jacob Rossman said. “It is a chance to learn more about law school in thirty minutes than you could through countless hours of research and communicating back and forth with admissions offices.”
Law Day hosts the largest law school fair in the state of Indiana, creating a space where students and law school recruiters can congregate.
Prelaw students can still expect high competition for law school seats in 2022–23. Although applications have sky-rocketed in recent years, they are recently dropping, according to data from the American Bar Association.
HPPLC estimates that 5,000 IU Bloomington students from all majors are interested in law. Law Day gives these students a chance to explore every step of the application process while providing them with information about law school. Law Day helps hundreds of students answer questions and decipher their passion for pursuing law.
The Health Professions and Prelaw Center (HPPLC) at IU-Bloomington provides advising and resources for students who want to pursue careers in law, medicine, and other health professions. Students considering these professions must excel academically and plan carefully. HPPLC works closely with IU Bloomington undergraduates and alumni, helping them become thoughtful, well-prepared, competitive applicants to professional programs.
